Kuiken Brothers From The Yard Featuring Mike A. - Dispatch

Have you heard of our Dispatcher, Mike from Newark, NJ? Mike started with Kuiken Brothers in January of 2015 at the Roseland location as a non-CDL Driver.  He had previously worked at another Lumber & Building Materials dealer in the area for a number of years so he came to us with a strong operational background – specifically in load building.  Mike’s knowledge was immediately put to use in building boom loads, handling Engineered Lumber, and reorganizing the tight Roseland yard to operate more efficiently.  Ultimately, those efforts were instrumental in Roseland significantly increasing their output.

In September 2018, Mike transferred to the Roxbury location and assumed the role of Assistant Dispatcher.  Just a few months later he transferred to Newark to serve as Dispatcher as we were getting closer to opening that location.  In his current role he shares invaluable knowledge and expertise with our new and growing staff in Newark.  Along with his colleagues, Mike has helped put Newark on the Kuiken Brothers map!

About From The Yard

From The Yard, is a new video series spotlighting many of our colleagues here at Kuiken Brothers – from sales, logistics & operations, millwork specialists, and our administrative team. We launched our first video in November 2021 and will post new videos every few weeks.

All of our roles here at Kuiken Brothers are interdependent on one another, and none of us can do our job well without the support of the entire team.

  • Our sales and marketing staff work hard to grow our business and brand.
  • Our operations team keeps our yards running smoothly for inbound product, customer picks-ups and deliveries.
  • Our drivers deliver a large percentage of our sales activity every day.
  • Our purchasing staff procures top grade materials from the best producers around the country.
  • Our facilities and fleet teams keep our buildings and trucks running efficiently.
  • Our professional administrative and HR teams keep our customer invoices flowing, our bills paid, and our employees safe – while offering some of the best benefits in the industry.

Ultimately, we’re all responsible for building relationships and adding value for each other and our customers.  The teamwork on display here at Kuiken Brothers to get this job done every day is nothing short of exceptional.  That’s not to say we’re always perfect.  Sometimes things don’t go according to plan, and we all know how frustrating that can be, but we work hard to correct those issues, and move on to get the job done well.

To our customers and future customers, thank you for all you do!  We greatly value the partnership that helps our projects moving forward. We hope you enjoy seeing some members of our team highlighted in this video series.
